“He’s worked very hard for two years to save the money to go.
“He loves books and reading and is very sporty; he loves to play football. He is a very caring person and is much loved by his family and friends.
“We are extremely worried and greatly appreciate all the help that can be given to locate Alec.
“I would encourage people to look out for Alec and call the police with any sightings or information that would help us to find him.”

There are Swedish words written within the frame and the tattoo is all in black ink.
